From Amerson's introduction on the Adundant Life Worship Center website:

Hobbies: Hanging with my wife, Anything sports related, Golf,drawing, cars...

Why do you do what you do? I do it because I have been given a passion to see young people's lives changed, in spiritual and personal ways, and I
think that is why God put me here.
